Environmental Justice and Community Organizing with the Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN)

February 23, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN) is an environmental justice organization with deep roots in California’s Asian immigrant and refugee communities. Since 1993, APEN has built a membership base of Laotian refugees in Richmond and Chinese immigrants in Oakland. Together, they’ve fought and won campaigns to make our communities healthier, just places where people can thrive. Learn more about APEN’s work and a workshop with UCLA Luskin.

Seng So, Los Angeles Lead Organizer: “In the 1980s Seng So’s parents fled the Khmer genocide and settled in the Bay Area. It is from this history—the struggles and sacrifices of his ancestors—that paves his path today. Seng has been a youth organizer in California’s immigrant and refugee communities for almost two decades. At the heart of his life and work are three principles: community, love, liberation.”

APEN is launching a new organizing project in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County: cities and neighborhoods like Wilmington, San Pedro, Carson and Torrance.
